    One thought on “The Vanishing Newspaper: Saving Journalism in the Information Age”

    1. I wasn't sure I was going to finish this one. It's not the book per se. It's well-written, with a lot of good information and takeaways despite its age. But that's the big problem: it was published in 2004, which means that the information itself was most likely written at least 13 years ago. A lot of things have happened since then, rendering large parts of this book moot. The whole third chapter about advertisers can easily be skipped or skimmed. As I said, there are some interesting statistic [...]

    2. As propostas de Philip Meyer, em The Vanishing Newspaper, para salvar a indústria do jornalismo impresso são fundamentadas por pesquisas detalhadas, farto material estatístico e aplicação direta de técnicas das ciências sociais para identificar tendências ratificadoras de que investir em qualidade de conteúdo é a única saída lucrativa para o negócio.Para Meyer, os jornais americanos, em nome das respostas de curto prazo exigidas pelo mercado financeiro, têm perdido a visão de long [...]

    3. Not only has the newspaper industry declined steadily, I'm convinced that all print media is in the same basket. People have less time and video is faster. With the latest apps, we can have a television and a PC on our cellphone. Add to this change in habits the simple practical fact that those majoring in journalism today are preparing for a career in a digital format, leaving no one trained in the old style of newspaper reporting. The research is different, the results are different and the de [...]

    4. Un gros, très gros effort, pour mesurer ce qui semble impossible à mesurer : la crédibilité d’un journal. Si ses propriétaires choisissent de couper dans les budgets, comme ils le font presque tous depuis 20 à 30 ans, en-dessous de quel seuil la crédibilité du média sera-t-elle irrémédiablement endommagée? La revue que fait Meyer des multiples études —nées du moment où, au tournant des anneés 1980, les éditeurs ont commencé à se rendre compte qu’ils avaient VRAIMENT un p [...]

    5. Like the Wire, it's a little out of date now, a little overly hopeful. Definitely constructed by a man with an agenda. But it's persuasive and could be of use in building something that will last or finding places that will. Also, it's novel to see some actual social science put to use instead of the constant bullshitting from NAA/SPJ/Poynter etc.

    6. With fake news prevailing like moral police in Iran, I think books like this are needed now more than ever. I love the chapters on "credibility" and "do editors matter" and also how money making has changed. ُsome works have been done but mostly they have focused on providing alternative channels like democracy now and the real docus should be on social media and a new way for online credibility.

    7. Some good points in here but overall, far too many statistics, and far too many places in which it seems that those statistics might have been manipulated to get the desired result.
